Backyard Getaway

Venice Canals

The Venice Canals are practically in my backyard but I rarely make it over there.  A serene oasis with colorful canoes, arched walkways and waterfront cottages--it's a perfect place to escape and recharge. I stopped by (possibly a bit overdressed to walk the docks) on my way to meet friends for dinner last weekend and I felt like I was worlds away. Hey- when a flight to Italy is not an option, this place is the next best thing!

This breezy neck-tie dress is a new favorite of mine. It's effortlessly flirty and requires very little accessorizing (so my style!) And with vintage greens and burgundy hues, it puts a darker fall spin on the classic floral dress.
